in america. now that the debate over obama care is over, we should start thinking about how to get america's health care costs under control. as it turns out, two new works, a book and a magazine cover story provide some very useful ways to think about it. the central debate between democrats and republicans is over whether the free market works well in health care. in a new book, catastrophic care, david goldhill makes the case for the market arguing that people need to become consumers of health care so that they, not insurance companies, not the government, actually see, feel and pay the bills. that will force producers of health care, doctors and hospitals, to push down prices and drive up quality. that's what happens with groceries and television sets and computers. lasiks surgery which is not covered by health insurance, has seen a 90% drop in price and increase in quality since it was introduced in the 1990s. that's what happens when consumers pay for a product. makes an opposite case in a recent cover story in "time" magazine. he pain stakingly went through the actual bills

because of obama care, because of the new financial regulations, this is a president who makes it very difficult for companies to hire nonunion workers, so very often they have to hire -- look at what happened to boeing in that regard. one organization has put the cost of regulations by this administration at a half a trillion dollars. how do they lower the cost of businesses? by firing workers. by stripping their business down to the barebones and that means firing people, and that's one reason our unemployment figures are still so bad. jenna: some suggest, david it doesn't feel quite as bad out there as it did a couple of years ago, because that felt rile, really bad and look at the stock market. >> back then the stock market was bad. this is the irony. very often when companies cut their employment their stock price will rise. we saw that happen with american express, with coca-cola. we've seen that happen with financial companies. they fire people the same day they announce big layoffs a thousand people, 1500 people even more the stock goes up 3, 4, 5%. >> it's good if have you a j
